This antique, 19th century, table-top ebony cabinet is crafted with beveled glass, double doors, over two short and one long base drawer. Notice the interesting, small brackets flanking the doors. Of the highest quality, this little piece is a treasure for discerning collector and a centerpiece for a special room. Catering to the tastes of Europeans traveling on the route between Calcutta and Delhi, the remarkable artisans of Monghyr (Munger) created small furniture pieces of rare ebony, intricately inlaid with ivory tracery; the finest of artistry.
